The editors have been known to throw out a feint and perhaps some other team not seen at an airport might actually be the last to arrive?

Also, since there are two legs in Moscow, perhaps this is the second NEL?

I am reviewing caps...

From the PREVIEW:



I think this means that the Beekman's may actually get on the last flight...and that Ryan and Abbie...do not.   :'(

Oops..WRONG. :lol:

We do know from spoilers that the lady swimmers were in the pool 14+ hours.  :swim

I feel so sorry for Josh & Brent. Brent was struggling with the "Synchronized" Task because he couldn't swim, but the coach became extremely impatient. I wish the coach was so much nicer

Jaymes/James said it as they were entering the Zurab Tsereteli Sculpture Park.

This was the best episode so far in an otherwise boring season.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

Just watched the episode............

I on the other hand, felt that this leg was the worst episode in a really good season! :lol:

Firstly, teams were all spread out onto different flights. Then the staggering timing made the whole leg seemed so mediocre. The library task was boring, the tree of love task was lame, the weather was wet and gloomy. Oh... Russia, why didn't you deliver like Siberia in TAR 14?

And there wasn't even any competition/fiery attitude among the first 4 teams, who......... obviously knew they were in the lead and took their own time. It was just a yawning fest through.

Doesn't help that Abbie and Ryan and Josh and Brent to run the entire leg together.

BUT, it showed a different side of Abbie and Ryan which I love. Such a gracious team. I know Trey and Lexi is a nice team but I know why are Abbie and Ryan behaving so defensively because the Sri Lankan sisters were targetting them...

Nvm.. boring next.. NEXT.

It's obvious the Rockers are so going to get eliminated, BTW.

We are all misfits living in a world on fire.

Here's a totally different perspective:
The spreading out of teams onto different flights was a stroke of good luck for the World Race Productions operations group. It allowed connections in Amsterdam and Munich to arrive ahead of the beginning of Hours of Operation while the delay through Frankfurt caused one group of 2 teams to fall far behind. That's excitement, rather than the boring lockstep that normally accompanies Amazing Race leg starts when all teams get on the same flight despite hours of difference in their start times.

I personnally think that this leg was one of the best, if not the best of this season yet (tho it dosen't have a lot of competition considering how lame the Asian legs were), tied with the Istanbul one just before.

I REALLY liked that finally there were a LOT of plane drama *TAR11 vibe*... I wouldn't want that in every leg, but once or twice by two season is really great. And with the addition of the passport drama... wow! Love when everything is not all orchestrated, if you know what I mean :lol:

The tasks were not the best, would have loved that the lock challenge be a bit more like the TAR6 one, the water polo swimming wasen't really scenic, but it seemed hard, and the library one seemed hard a first but Trey & Lexi finished before everyone else who were at the swimming task.

I think that Europe always brings out one of the best legs of the race, while for Asia, sometime its good, but sometimes its really bad.

The tasks in general are easier nowadays sadly.

I still think Abi and Ryan waiting at the detour was as foolish as the teams telling others where the abacus woman was in the first leg.

Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

I wouldn't say as foolish than Kami & Karli and Fran & Barry missing their cluebox in arm's reach when they kept searching for it. But these tasks are not easier than the ones in seasons 1 and 2.
